    Maybe this solution is not ideal but it is a far better one than selling it to the bat viruses.

  • I am not a huge fan of nationalization but Motor Sich is a critical resource for Ukraine. With out it there will be no aviation industry. So I am glade Ukraine moved to protect this company and not leave it in control of unscrupulous Kleptocrats.
    The management of MS has continuously acted in their own interest at the expense of Ukraine. often times selling critical parts to Russia and at one point planning to move their plant to Belarus to by pass sanctions on Russia.
    I wish the government had simply just said no to any sale of the company as the US does. Can you imagine China trying to buy Lockheed Martin? Which they would do in a New York minuet no matter what the cost.
